century is great cuz it has resonably good quality parts for good price, but why cant people just pack in the right stuff and if stuff is out of stock maybe put in a note saying... "charger is out of stock, we will send priority when it arrives... sorry" etc...

Buznee,

I agree that someone should have checked this out before sending it (I am not sure of the exact process that occurs from the shipping department).

Call Century and let them know the problem (so they can log this issue -they need to know these problems so they can correct them) and have them send you one ASAP (shipping at their cost).

Let me know if you are having any problems getting this item. Good luck.

The hobby shop i go to just got 2 of the hummingbird combos in, the ones with the lighting radios, they put in the old boards with the gyros built in and sent the old style chargers the ones that come with the adapter at the end. Now i dont know if they sent it like that because he got the cheaper ones in or not Century is out of there gyros right now .The hobby shop cancelled his order for 12 more combos at this time because they told him they wont have any gyros in till after x-mas. BY the way the 2 heli's he got had the swash plate mods.

by the way, to my suprise the battery came somewhat charged. Me and my impatient self decided to test fly the chopper without a gyro =).
I always wondered how hard it is to fly a heli without a gyro. Its hard but it can be done. I was able to hover for a bit but the tail swings around everywhere. Really hard to hold it. Always acts different at different power settings. I did end up crashing the chopper in a minor manner about 3 times. But almost zero damage. These things are DURABLE!

Look at your packing slip...I ordered my Lithium package (saw the ad here on RunRyder) from HeliHobby on the 15th or so, and my packing slip has the Gyro and Charger on backorder.

On a computer site that I order parts from, when you go to the checkout it says:
[so and so item] is on backorder, please choose an option:
1. Cancel the order.
2. Send the order, but remove the items listed from the order.
3. Send the order and backorder the items listed.

it would have been nice to have something like this from HeliHobby.
I would have gotten the gyro and charger from somewhere else and been flying by now (which is precisely why most sites don't do this)

...Joey
